IE9: Display the Stop and Refresh Buttons Before the Address Bar

Posted September 19, 2010 by Rob Rogers in Browsers

By default, Internet Explorer 9 has the Stop and Refresh buttons after the address bar. If you would like them to be next to the Back and Forward buttons, you can move them to display to the left of the Address Bar and keep your control buttons grouped together.

1. Open Internet Explorer 9. The Stop and Refresh buttons are to the right of the address bar.

2. Right-click the tab bar.

3. Select Move Stop and Refresh.

The Stop and Refresh buttons will be relocated to the left of the address bar.

    thanks for that tip…so simple so useful,

  • That would be great but I do not have that option. It does not appear when I right click the tab bar. What moron decided they should go to the right anyway?
